In brief: Yes

Orchitis, inflammation of the testicles, usually results from the spread of infection from the epididymis, and under such circumstances it would not be unusual to see the causative agents appear in the semen, but it is the urine which is generally cultured, and under those circumstances those cultures may be positive.
