I can't see on Google Books what source his footnote is citing, but Rabbi Menachem Nissel, in Rigshei Lev, says that there are 113 words in Chana's prayer, and 113 words total among the [closing] b'rachos of sh'mone esre.

Chanoch lived for 300 years after he begat Mesushelach. Mesushelach was 187 when he begat Lemech. So, when Chanoch was "no longer", Lemech was...113!

113 is the number of the final daf in Sanhedrin.
