Georgetown (16-25) got on the board in the second inning, after getting lead-off batter Kristi Preuss on base and three batters later scoring off a double by Cara Savarse.
The Hoyas got an insurance run in the third when Samantha Peters hit a solo home run to left center. Nescio threw a complete seven-inning game, allowing two runs on four hits, striking out four and walking one.
