    You can get away with it but it sounds better if you expand the phrase to include "a total of" or if you otherwise expand the sentence.

    Phil Hughes limited the Rangers to three hits over eight shutout innings, leaving with [a total of] 101 pitches.

    or

    Phil Hughes limited the Rangers to three hits over eight shutout innings, leaving with 101 pitches, just 38 of which were balls.
