The highlight of a quiet first half came courtesy of a header from Iron's Niall Canavan which was tipped over by Luke McCormick.
Plymouth started the second half stronger, but Reuben Reid had a goal disallowed for offside.
Scunthorpe finally broke the deadlock when Esajas pounced from close range after Sam Winnall's shot was blocked.
